The Buddfab did succeed in driving a new world speedrecord for 50cc at the speed of 233.3 km/h. This is about 8 km/h faster than the Dutch record from 1981. This is a fantastic result for USA motorsport and it seems to be not the last one. In Holland we think it is also succes that it tooks a period of 27 years to do it, which is a record on its own.
